Here’s a detailed breakdown of how our process works.

Our simple five-step process for IT disposal and recovery services

We’ll pay for your unwanted IT assets

We’ll assess your unwanted IT assets and using our knowledge and experience, we’ll offer you the best market price for equipment that is resaleable - something that isn’t offered with some other IT disposal companies.

We understand that every customer's situation is different when it comes to how your IT equipment will be reused after we’ve completed our work. That’s why at this stage, we’ll discuss all of the options available to you and we’ll tailor what we do with your assets to meet your requirements.

We also have access to the best broker market knowledge thanks to our reliable contacts and can therefore ‘control the release’ of large volumes of IT ensuring we can maximise the revenue brought in from your equipment.

We don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach, so whether you choose for us to outright purchase your assets, profit share, donate to charity, or anything else, we can meet your needs. Get in touch with our specialist team today to discuss how we can help meet your IT asset disposal (ITAD) requirements today.

We’ll collect your equipment securely

Once we’ve purchased your unwanted IT assets, we’ll arrange for collection from your premises anywhere in the UK, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

All of our vehicles are fitted with GPS tracking devices and are equipped with secure locking containers to safely transport your IT equipment. Our drivers are also security vetted and are highly experienced with collecting IT assets in a quick and efficient manner, ensuring minimal disruption for you and your business.

After collection, all items are taken to our secure storage facility where they’re immediately booked into a ‘quarantine’ area upon arrival. Here, they’ll be sorted, recorded and separated accordingly for data erasure.

We’ll erase all of your sensitive data accordingly

After your assets have been sorted, we’ll begin our work of erasing all of your sensitive data. We’ve partnered with Blancco to provide you with a certified data erasure solution and this guarantees all of your sensitive data will be completely sanitised from all devices. This robust process prevents any unintended disclosure of stored information, giving you the reassurance of knowing your IT assets are being securely and properly processed.

Fully compliant with strict data regulations, our state-of-the-art solution is 100% effective and is much more reliable than other standard deletion and formatting techniques. You’ll have full traceability of the process through tracking of serial numbers and unique identifiers, keeping you fully up to date on progress.

We resell and recycle

We’re committed to reselling, reusing or recycling equipment where possible so we can reduce the amount of waste going to landfill. After your assets have been completely sanitised of all sensitive data, you can be sure that they can be reused, sold or donated with confidence.

Whatever you’d like us to do with your IT equipment once all data has been completely wiped, we’ll get to work in fulfilling your requirements. From donating to charity, to implementing a staff sale scheme, we can meet your individual needs. Be sure to contact us to discuss your requirements with our specialist team today.

If your IT assets can’t be resold, reused or recycled, we’ll destroy your equipment responsibly. We’re a Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) compliant recycler, meaning we’ll extract every last component possible to help reduce the amount of waste going to landfill. You’ll have full transparency on our disposal process as we’ll provide you with full end-to-end documentation for each item we destroy.

You’ll receive a complete audit trail

When we process your IT assets, you will receive a complete audit inventory and relevant documentation required for your records. This will include detailed information for models, serial and asset numbers for each item. Additionally, our data erasure process provides 100% traceability through the tracking of serial numbers and unique identifiers (Blancco erasure IDs) which will also be included in your audit.

If we destroy, shred or recycle your IT equipment, we’ll issue you a certificate for each item. For non-hazardous and hazardous waste, such as cathode ray tubes and lead acid batteries, we’ll send you waste transfer notes. All of your important documentation can be managed in the OCM secure portal share point, allowing you to keep all of your records in one place for easy access with your own login.
